Online PR News – 19-October-2015 – Hong Kong – ZShares® Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) business launched three new minimum volatility ETFs designed to help investors manage risk in their portfolios.
The new ETFs are:
• ZShares MSCI Europe Minimum Volatility ETF
• ZShares MSCI Japan Minimum Volatility ETF
• ZShares MSCI Asia ex Japan Minimum Volatility ETF

Patrick Wong, Head of ZShares Global Markets and Investments at Zephyr Securities, said:
“Volatility has generally increased over the past decade and investors are wondering how to adjust their portfolios to help minimize this risk, while still meeting their long-term goals. The traditional ‘safe havens’ of cash and government bonds have not provided much of an alternative, with returns at or near historical lows. Zephyr Securities with its long heritage of product innovation created ZShares Minimum Volatility ETFs to provide investors the opportunity to remain in the market while seeking to minimize the market’s peaks and valleys. These ETFs can provide a complement or alternative to the core indexed portfolio, potentially improving risk-adjusted returns over the long term.”

The ZShares Minimum Volatility ETFs are designed to track the Minimum Volatility Indices. The Indices seek to capture the movements of broad equity markets with a reduced amount of risk. It constructs an optimal mix of less volatile stocks by examining the respective parent market capitalization-weighted Indices, evaluating the volatility of each individual stock and the correlations between stocks, all while applying a number of constraints to ensure the portfolio is sufficiently diversified and maintains the main characteristics of the broad market index. The application of constraints is important in making sure the index isn’t too heavily concentrated in one industry or country, which could create additional unintended risk.
